ESERA Summer School 2019

Crete, Greece

June, 4 – June, 9 2019

Notes on Applying: Staff


Dear ESERA Colleague,

This note is for supervisors who might wish to apply for the next ESERA Summer School 2019 in Kolympari (Chania), Crete, Greece. At a summer school, supervisors work in pairs to mentor a group of around seven PhD students as they present and discuss their research. Some supervisors also give a plenary lecture or lead a workshop. Attending the summer school gives an opportunity to work closely with science education researchers and students in a stimulating international environment. It is also a way to develop further your skills and knowledge in PhD supervision. Applications are welcomed from all supervisors who are members of ESERA. Information about ESERA membership can be found at:

The ESERA Summer School 2019 will require 14 mentors and additional roving mentors. Traditionally, most of the lectures and workshops have been presented by staff acting as mentors for groups of 7 PhD students – and this is a tradition we wish to maintain. There is no longer a requirement for a staff member to be currently supervising a PhD student who is applying to the summer school.


Staff applicants should create an account and fill-up the fields of the Staff Application Form visiting the following link ( In the Staff Application Form you are asked to provide some personal information and to indicate the contribution(s) you would like to make to the summer school (as mentors, workshop or lecture presenters). The deadline for receipt of applications is December 2, 2018.

If you have any question please don’t hesitate to contact us at:

Mentors will be selected on the basis of their experience of supervision at PhD level, and the other contributions they offer to the summer school – and with a view to ensuring international participation. In order to keep the summer school to a reasonable size, the total number of staff members will be limited to a maximum of twenty.
